Spring Term 2018 – First Half

Welcome back! We hope you’ve all had a lovely Christmas break. We have lots of fun things planned to help us learn this half term. Below is our topic information – we hope it gives you an idea of the things we’ll be doing and learning about over the coming weeks (click image to enlarge).


Foundation Stage:


Year 1:



We’d like all children to make a simple puppet this half term. Does anybody have any spare time to give to work your way through the children, 1 or 2 at a time over 5 weeks, to help them sew their puppet? It will be a simple hand or sock puppet. Do come and see us if you would be able to help.

We’re heading to Haldon Woods at some point to look at the woods in Winter (looking at and comparing the changes since we looked at trees in the Autumn, at Killerton) and linking with our Stick Man work.

A few reminders:

  • PE kits need to be left in school. Keep a spare pair of pants/tights in PE bags if you think it necessary.
  • Please remember to send your child to school with a named water bottle and a fruit snack.

Ideally for Foundation Stage children, sharing a book for around 5 – 10 minutes every day helps greatly with progress towards becoming a reader. If you and your child have any energy left at the end of a busy day to read together that would be wonderful!

This term we will be sending out the letter sounds that we’ve been learning each week and words to sound out, using the sounds that we’ve focused on that week. We’ll put the information sheet in your child’s book bags.

Please pop in to see us if you have any questions.
